Losing the Match Game: Few Residency Slots Leave More Graduates Unmatched

An increasing number of medical graduates in the country, particularly in Texas, are finding it hard to match to a residency program in their preferred specialty. While medical educators say there are various reasons for that, almost all point to a growing imbalance in the ratio of medical graduates to residency slots. That imbalance is particularly apparent in Texas, where the state offered fewer first-year residency positions in 2010 than it had medical graduates.
